da75e7856ee64df6fe1a008ce566e2a5.jpgJeff Gerbino has been doing stand up for over 30 years. The "business" of Stand Up Comedy did not exist in the Midwest when Jeff first took the Stage. His time in the business has brought him into the spheres of some of the greatest names in the business and after all this time, he can still make the Crowd howl. Enjoy.

Episode 45: Mike O’Keefe

MIkeOkeefe.jpgMike O'Keefe is Detroit Comic. He's very funny. We talked about Kiss, Wrestling, Real estate, Comedy clubs, Being Irish and a bunch of other stuff, that I'm sure you will find amazing. Check out Mike's album "Where ever they'll have me"  or visit his website: themikeokeefe.com. Also I spent 15 mintues trying to get that sideway's picture to be not sideways and It wouldn't have it, so that's what I'm stuck with. Any way, Mike is a riot, enjoy the show.

Episode 43: Rob Brackenridge & Steve Hartman go down an Internet Wormhole

This week on the Spencer Dobcast I sit down with Rob Brackenridge  and Steve Hartman. This Episode is an experiment. I am trying out a new format that I am calling an internet wormhole. 

The Logistics of this format should seem pretty clear as you listen to the show.

Here are the sites we visited if you want to take a look at anything.

Episode 42: Kissology

This Week I Traveled to the Brainerd International Raceway. I did this to see a Kiss Tribute band Called Kissology. As it turns out, they where playing horsedrawn.jpgthe Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals. Apparently it's a pretty big event in the drag racing world. There was a sea of winnebago's and army of golf carts and mini bikes, I have never seen that many people in that small a space with thathoppedupcar.jpg many Golf carts. But the vibe was good, the people where friendly. I assume the races where, fun I never got the to the track. 

I've known Jeff Decker since high school. We used to play guitar in his basement. Jeff already had the tongue to be in Kiss be he also has the love of the band. Jeff is a walking encyclopdia of Kiss Knowledge and the name of his tribute

band "Kissology" reflects his Scholarly knowledge on the subject.The Band Constists of (Almost) Ace Frehley - Richard Schultz
(Practically) Paul Stanley - Scott Chandler
(Pretty Much) Peter Criss- Brian Chandler
& (Just About) Gene Simmons - Jeff Decker
I also talk with the Bands Merchandise Manager Destroy Gene, AKA Greg Trimm. Greg is also a Gene impersonator and huge fan. 
Kissoloyg Sound like them, they look like them and Rock like them. 
I chat a little with the opening acts, Kick Starts bass player Ben Kervin.

 The show was a lot of fun by the way. Ok, enjoy.

Episode 40 : The Bullet Proof Hearts.

smallbphkt.jpgHey. This week I talk to one of my best friends from High School, Kevin Moran and his Wife Tammy about their Band The Bullet Proof Hearts. I was in Omaha to see Kevin and Tammy and the Bullet Proof Hearts perform at the Omaha Punk Rock Reunion at the Waiting Room, formerly known as the "Lift Ticket". In the 80's the Lift Ticket had all ages punk shows. This is the place that introduced me to Punk Rock. Punk, obviously wasn't started in Omaha, but I saw punk up close and personally for the first time in Omaha.

Kevin and I had lost touch for several years, so it's been great getting reacquainted and finding out how much Kevin still Rocks. He a man who's life is literally infused with Rock and Roll. 
The Bullet Proof Hearts are on Drastic Plastic Records
Also, Special Thanks to Prairie Pine Plantation. Ok, Enjoy.
